    Clone Cones are crappy ice cream. I think a ban is likely forthcoming.

    This is the most Iowan answer ever.

    When they remodeled the ISU Memorial Union in 1995 they destroyed most of the character the building had just so kids could get Subway or Panda Express.

    If it wasn't required for B12 membership, we could drop every sport outside of football and MBB and I wouldn't mind one bit. They are all irrelevant.

    If it weren't for Iowa state athletics I probably wouldn't give a flying flip about sports.

    Also you all are a bunch of freaking cry babies.

    Also, we aren't that good in bball even though a lot of fans like to hang their hat on it.

    Orr was lucky he coached in the 80s when no one saw the road games because they weren't on local tv. He had a solid home record, hence hilton magic, but his road record was pretty poor. Different eras.

    My unpopular take: That field goal for Oklahoma State back in 2011 should have been good.

    On a similar note, our field goal vs Alabama in the Independence bowl was also good.

    Rolling out of bed at 930 for a 10am class was worth a B.

    While a great story, the Jack Trice obsession is over the top by the fan base and university.

    The absence of anything approaching natural beauty in Central Iowa really can't be overstated. It makes even eastern Iowa look downright picturesque.

    The wrestling program (and wrestling programs everywhere) raises hundreds of thousands of dollars independent of the athletic department. Wrestling is actually a growing sport nationally. Comparing it to T&F and CC is laughable. The only people who attend soccer matches or softball games are family members and roommates.

    Janny, did a wrestler stuff you in a locker back in high school or something?

    Janny's school only had about two wrestlers on it's team if it hadn't combined with another by then so I doubt that happened.

    Believe it or not I actually like the sport. Wrestled myself in school, used to do radio play by play for high school wrestling, have attended the NCAA championship tournament on multiple occasions.
    I think it's a great sport. I just a realist about it, and it's place in the hierarchy of collegiate athletics.

    I think this has changed. It still applies to some dingbats but the number is dwindling.
